Okay, so I'm guessing that if you have a TV or any access to the Internet, then you've probably heard about Elaine Stritch. Recently, the 89-year-old actress/genius visited the Today Show and uttered the word "fuck" on live television. As you can imagine, the clip went viral. Whoddathunk that when you bring one of the funniest women in the entertainment business onto a live TV program, she's going to speak her mind? (Or in this case, just do ... Read More
The music industry is a wacky place that just seems to get wackier every day. Being a DIY-driven artist in a corporate world sounds more like a path to grey hair than to success. But in 2011, a few brave souls organized a completely DIY national tour, titled "Check Yo Ponytail." The 20 dates featured the talents of Spank Rock, Big Freedia, Pictureplane, The Death Set, and the mastermind behind it all: Franki Chan. Franki Chan and his partner Danny Johnson ... Read More
Traditionally, it’s been scripted for you: first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage… Yadda, yadda, yadda. Sounds easy enough. Until you decide that the script isn’t for you. In this new HBO documentary, First Comes Love, filmmaker Nina Davenport throws the script out and documents how it goes doing things her way. She's unmarried, over 40 and she wants to have a baby.  The plan is, there is no plan. This ... Read More
  We've been closely following the work and status of admirable teenager Malala Yousafzai ever since we first heard reports of her attack back in October. The 15-year-old advocate for women's education rights was gunned down by the Taliban, shooting her in the neck and head. She amazingly survived this awful crime and has been continuing to speak her mind and raise awareness for these pressing issues ever since.  Now Davis Guggenheim, of Waiting for ... Read More
  We may think we know, but we have no idea. She was the most famous woman in the world and yet the world knew so little about her. Marilyn Monroe was so much more than the air-headed characters she portrayed; she was highly intelligent, passionate and driven, as well as an innovative leader for women in Hollywood. She bucked the system and made her career her own. Love Marilyn  takes her recently discovered writings and turns them into poignant ... Read More
HBO has really stepped up their game. Their documentaries are no exception to this. They seem to be resurrecting an art-from that had been pushed to the side in favor of instant internet journalism. We can safely say that, with the premier of Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer, HBO has revived the documentary. The film, directed by Mike Lerner and Maxim Pozdorovkin, shows some never-before-seen footage of the trial and events leading up to that performance in ... Read More
We've been fans of duo songstresses Smoke Fairies since their debut release Through Low Light and Trees back in 2011. The British gals, Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davies, have fine-tuned their haunting harmonized vocals and powerful dual guitarwork over the past six years. Smoke Fairies put an eerily brilliant spin on blues rock by incorporating classic folk elements into their sound, especially on tracks like "Let Me Know" and "Awake." The psych-folk ladies ...

When most people are asked, “What is your favorite superhero?” most all people choose a male superhero such as Spiderman or Batman.  Rarely is the answer a female superhero, although there are many.  Wonder Woman is first female superhero to come to people’s minds and is considered by many to be a feminist icon.  We know that TV’s talk show host Wendy Williams feels inspired by Wonder Woman when she sips on her Wonder Woman ...

In rural India, over 80 percent of women use rags, often ripped from old clothing, to manage their monthly visit from good ol’ Aunt Flo. Though we’re all about environmentally friendly period solutions here at BUST, the statistics tell a different story: the often unsanitary rag cloths that women use during their periods can cause infections and even infertility, cancer, and death.   When inventor Muruganantham found out that his wife used rag ...
